    We are excited to announce one of our community developers Frozen, was representing us at the convention. He had the opportunity while at the conference to, set up a booth, do some networking, generate interest in XDAG, as well as setting up a few mobile wallets and handing out some XDAG while he was there to a few lucky souls!!

    A special thank you to all who contributed XDAG so Airdrops could be made possible this weekend:

    XDAG Meetup

    We are also pleased to announce we held our first XDAG development meetup in Beijing, China on August 11th. Some of the key discussion points were:

    • The logic of XDAG
    • Implementing mining through the Python language
    • How to achieve DAG structure in XDAG
    • Double spending processing and high TPS
    • Current development status
    • Progressing the roadmap and what the future holds for XDAG

    The meeting ended with a Q&A session.

    We are currently trying to implement Python XDAG to display the logic of XDAG, a few devs are going to join us to implement Golang XDAG, which development will be starting very soon. There will be three developers working on Golang XDAG with the goal to implement enhanced pool node functionality.

    On this note Frozen has said that XDAG will be very busy over the next month or so with 7 activities for XDAG each weekend working up until the end of September in different cities. We will be sure to keep you all posted on these events! The convention was considered a success with a considerable turnout and with many conversations had on behalf of XDAG, as well as the XDAG Development meetup attended by Frozen.

    The community would like to say many thanks for representing us this weekend as well A big thanks to bCamp for providing meeting rooms and a variety of snacks for the team! Thanks bCamp for the long-term support of the XDAG community! This is all very exciting news and the team is very excited about welcoming more contributors to the project, the more we grow, firm up our technology, work hard on our social platforms and outreach, the moons the limit.

  • Our core developer Evgeniy has released an update to his XDAG GPU Miner. It now supports worker names and comes with a Mac OS version! Full change list can be found below.

    Change list:

    1. New option -w <WORKER_NAME> - allows to set names for your rigs. Compatible only with XDAG 0.2.5. Do not use this option with pools version 0.2.4 and lower. Miner will be disconnected.
    2. Miner tries to restart GPUs in case of errors.
    3. In case of some GPU stopped - miner will not longer constantly print the last known hashrate value.
    4. You can configure -nvidia-fix parameter now: -nvidia-fix N, N can an integer from 5 to 95. Default value is 90. This parameter is intended to decrease CPU usage on computers with Nvidia GPUs. If the parameter is specified, logic of miner calculates how much time GPU spends on each range of nonces and switches current thread to the sleeping state for some part of the time. Sleeping for 90% of time could cause decresing of hashrate, so now you can configure the parameter yourself. But the less the time of sleeping - the more CPU usage.
    5. New parameter -vectors - enables OpenCL vector operations. On some GPUs it can increase performance, on some - decrease.
    6. Version for Mac OS.
    7. Optional fee 1%. You can disable fee with option -no-fee.

  • We are pleased to announce that XDAG v0.2.5 is released.

    Change list:

    1. Increased performance of loading of storage folder and synchronisation between pools (up to 100%).
    2. Worker names. Now it is possible to mark your rigs with names and track them. New version of Dagger Gpu Miner (v0.3.0) supports that feature.
    3. Hashrate for miners is calculated by pool.
    4. It is not necessary to specify pool address to start a wallet. You can start executable file without any parameters and wallet will automatically connect to any available pool.
    5. CPU-mining is removed from GUI-wallet.
    6. Order of transactions returned by block command is changed. The newest transactions are shown first now
    7. New and change pool parameters and command:
      • mainblocks N command - returns list of newest main blocks with some additional information
      • minedblocks N command - returns list of last main blocks mined by current pool
      • lastblocks command is marked as obsolete and will be removed in xdag v0.3.1
      • miner <ADDRESS> command - prints detailed information about specified miner
      • -dm startup option - makes it possible to disable mining at all on the current pool. Disables generating new blocks each 64 seconds and pool is not available for connections for miners. This option is necessary for block explorer.
    8. Several small bug-fixes and improvements
    We are pleased to announce that XDAG v0.2.5 is released.
